October at Echo Lake with Fog in Dexter

The best autumn colors in the Maine Highlands takes place in mid-October as shown here on Echo Lake, formally called Puffers Pond, in Dexter Maine. This is near Fern Road and the Garland Road. The scene was made even more interesting with the addition of the fog which picked up some of the color from the sunrise. The best images can be realized by using what is called a polarizing filter on a camera that allows the changing of lenses. These filters decrease the scattering of light and reflections from surfaces, thereby deepening colors.
